“I’m not sure anyone really needs a reason to move to Boston,” Terry said. “This city has a place of just grabbing onto your heart and not letting go. I think it’s the people who live here as much as anything. It doesn’t matter what happens – massive snowstorm, crazy traffic – they just roll with it. Nothing stops them!”
Many of the people who choose to Boston live in Massachusetts or other nearby states, including New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. One of the top reasons cited for a move to Boston is to reduce the daily commute people are making to work. “I like my car – I love my car, actually,” Terry said. “But I don’t want to spend a couple of hours in it every day.”
When you’re moving to Boston, you want to choose a moving company that’s familiar with Boston’s unique geography. Some cities are laid out on a grid pattern, where even people who have never been to the city before can logically work out how to get to their destination without much difficulty. Boston is not one of these cities. The roads in Boston evolved from colonial-era pathways into a tangled warren of narrow, confusing streets – some of which are one way and many of which are challenging to navigate with a large moving truck. If your move to Boston is a DIY adventure, make sure you take advantage of every insurance coverage option available to you when renting a moving truck – one little fender bender can turn out to be extremely expensive otherwise.
One way to save yourself a lot of stress and worry during your move to Boston is to hire a professional moving company to do the driving for you. It’s an easy way to start your life off in Boston with a smile on your face!
